Dreamy

I don't think this post has much of a point other than to share these pictures below. I had spent a lazy, lazy day in last week and as evening was setting in, the last of the day's sun was coming in through the windows and I managed to capture these dreamy pictures.

Side note: I'm absolutely loving having greenery in the home! I may just need to buy more green, leafy floor plants. Or succulents...? Shoot me some suggestions for easy-care plants. Christina, I'm sure you've got some... :)

Thanks for visiting!

My Travel Necessities

I spent the past few days out of town and I thought I'd share with you guys my travel necessities...mainly because it has taken me forever to find the perfect weekend bag and now that I have, I must share! I finally found the one below at TJ Maxx and for a girl my frame, I can't be toting around something awfully big as a weekender.

I love my Sonia Kashuk makeup bags. I have one for my eye makeup and one for my face makeup. Jacket from H&M and scarf from H&M. Both are old so I don't have links for them.

Don't let this little handful of brushes deceive you. When I travel, I pack all of my brushes. My worst nightmare is missing a brush. Vain, I know.

I can't travel without these: a book to read, my journal, my planner, and my little notebook.

I carry this heart jewelry case everywhere when I travel. It's the perfect size, super Asian, and from Mr. Man so it makes me smile. Earrings from Lauren Conrad via Kohl's. Similar here.

My makeup favorites. I don't pack lipstick when I travel - just this Buxom lip gloss and it gives me the perfect color. Main thing of note in this picture: I LOVE my makeup remover wipes from Simple. There is no alcohol in it and it perfectly removes my waterproof eye makeup. It's not too wet and the smell is light. It's perfect.

Being Asian-eyed, mascara is a MUST and this is my holy grail mascara. Hope In a Jar is obviously a must for dehydrated skin while traveling.

It's amazing how much I can stuff in this bag. It's big enough for me to shove in a pair of heels, a weekend outfit, and my makeup must-haves. These shoes are from Windsor.

Thanks for stopping by! You guys make my day!
What do you guys have in your travel bag?

Catching Up

I don't know if anybody looks forward to stay-at-home "catch-up" days as much as I do. You know what days I'm talking about. You have things to do but none of them involve leaving the home so you can go at your own pace. You stay in your PJs and check things off the to-do list as slow as you'd like. No jeans or shoes required. Today, most of the things I have to do involve the computer so I'm looking forward to making myself a comfy spot on the couch and munching on the bowl of blueberries next to me.

This is how I'm spending my first day of spring. Massachusetts still has no idea that it's spring so we'll see how long it takes to warm up. How are you guys welcoming the spring season?
